What are other firsts that blacks and other people of color HAVEN'T achieved?

The Shani Davis 1st black person to win individual gold medal thread got me thinking...

In American newspapers you see all the time, "she's the first Hispanic to be...", "he's the first African-American to..." Other than the obvious things like be President of the United States, what are other FIRSTS that blacks and other people of color HAVEN'T achieved?

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Been Admins or (regular, not forum) Moderators on this board? (Hurricane Lily is Filipino though, if that counts as "ppl of color").
